Vynfields Martinborough Dry Rosé 2010

Rose from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 25-Apr-2011
John Bell and Kaye McAulay have explored the rosé style with enthusiasm, inspired by a strong following for earlier releases. Formerly labelled ‘Pêche de Noire', this is an organic wine, made from 100% Pinot Noir from the estate on the Martinborough Terrace, fermented to 14.5% alc. and less than 1 g/l residual sugar, thus designed to work with food. Pale peach in colour – oeil de perdrix (eye of the partridge), this is a subtle and delicate wine in expression. Subtle soft red fruits - strawberries, and possibly a peachy note (power of suggestion?), with hints of herbs and minerals, quite delicate in actuality, on the palate, which is one of substance, weight, volume and body. The acidity seems shy, but the cut comes from the alcohol. The finish is distinctly dry and fine. This will be versatile with a wide range of foods. Drink now to 2 years. 110 cases made. 17.5-/20 Dec 2010 RRP $27.75 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade', the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews' operates
